  • 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM MS2 Discovery Institute Seminar Series: Unstable Interfaces and Plumes

    In many applications involving waves at the surface of a fluid, it is often sufficient just to consider steady-state situations, where the wave pattern does not change noticeably with time. Waves behind moving ships are one such example. There is an enormous literature on such situations, and at least for two-dimensional flow, steady waves can be computed reasonably accurately.

    This talk will consider some examples of unsteady fluid flow, characterized by the presence of an unstable interface. We will discuss how fluid viscosity and interface thickness change the singular behaviour predicted by (non-linear) inviscid theory, in some surprisingly subtle ways.

    Larry Forbes is an Applied Mathematician from the University of Tasmania, in Australia's island state. He did his PhD with Len Schwartz and the late Ernie Tuck on steady water waves produced by under-sea objects. He then worked for the Defence Department in Melbourne, before moving to the University of Iowa to work with Lou Landweber. He was an assistant professor at Kansas State, and then moved to Queensland University back in Australia. Since 2000, he has been a full professor at the University of Tasmania. He is interested in non-linear fluid-flow problems, dynamical systems and the use of Applied Mathematics to design medical imaging equipment.

  • 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM Regenerating the Forest: Agroecological Erva-Mate Production in Brazil

    Join André Lacerda, researcher from Embrapa Forestry, and Eve Nimmo, postdoctoral fellow in the Department of History at Ponta Grossa State University, for this research seminar on Brazil's agroecological erva-mate production. This seminar will explore the contemporary and historical context of Brazil's agroecological erva-mate production and explain how it is helping to regenerate the Brazilian forest.

    Join Laurier students and faculty for delightful music at the Kitchener Public Library.
    6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Student Mental Health Series 2019/20

    Often we hear about the importance of exercise, "eating right," mindfulness, and other behaviours for our health, but what other ways can help you be healthy? Are you doing what you want to do?

    The power of setting goals for ourselves has been underestimated. Dr. Coulombe will provide empirical data and examples of how personal goals can lead to health benefits. This is especially important for students who face academic, social, family, and other pressures.

    In a time of transition with new stresses and in new environments, what can connect you to you?
